Nominations are now being accepted for the 2024 Teacher of the Year for Anne Arundel County Public Schools and the county’s Independent Schools.
All nominees will be recognized at the 38th annual Excellence in Education awards, hosted by the Education Foundation of Anne Arundel County Public Schools, on Thursday, April 25, 2024, and the public school winner will represent AACPS in the state’s recognition and awards program. Last spring, Mary Kay Connerton, a Physical Education/Health Teacher at Annapolis High School, was named the 2023 Anne Arundel County Public Schools Teacher of the Year.
Previous winners of the county public schools award have had great success at the state and regional levels. AACPS has had two Maryland State Teacher of the Year winners in the past six years – Josh Carroll of South River High School (2018) and Teresa Beilstein of South Shore Elementary (2020). AACPS’ 2022 Teacher of the Year, Charles Whitaker, an HVAC Instructor at the Center of Applied Technology North, was named the 2023 Washington Post Teacher of the Year.
NOTE: The event below, Arts Alive 25, was held on September 8, 2023.
